Christian Rowe – Club Statement

It is with a heavy heart that we write to all our football Friends, Players, Managers, Members and Volunteers to share the devastating news that one of our current 1st Team players, Christian Rowe, has sadly passed away whilst travelling home after our Berks & Bucks County Cup fixture on Wednesday evening this week.

Christian had only recently joined up with our 1st Team and represented the club 5 times. He was a hugely talented player and quickly earned the respect of his fellow players, fans and our Management Team here at Binfield FC. 

We were grateful to his home club Slough Town FC, who loaned Christian until the end of the season so that he could get experience playing with our talented 1st Team squad. Impressing all at Slough Town, his club were keen to maximise his development by encouraging this talented young player to get some quality game time in a senior playing environment before they themselves introduced him into their own senior side at a higher level.

A 19-year-old young man, Christian had quickly established himself as an extremely popular and capable member of our 1st Team here at Binfield FC.  We are all devastated by the news of his passing and we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Christian’s family, friends, Slough Town FC and all that knew him.  A wonderful talent and popular young man, we will always hold a special memory of Christian here at Binfield FC.

As a mark of respect, we have postponed our next Isthmian league fixture against Staines Town on Saturday 22nd January 2022 and we will be holding a minutes silence for Christian at all our youth fixtures this coming weekend including our soccer school on Sunday morning with our Reception and Infant Soccer School players.

Our thoughts are with all of Christian’s family and loved ones at this difficult and hugely painful time.

Sending you all our love and thoughts.

Binfield Football Club
